Anita Avedian, MFT, MS, MFT, CAMS-IV, TFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles
Are you interested in making a change? I will listen to your pain, frustrations, and sit with you through your struggles. If you are experiencing social anxiety, having difficulty in your relationship, struggling with anger, or fighting addictions, I will work with you. I enjoy teaching skills and coaching my clients through the proper use of them. Treatment may be brief to address a problem, yet the skills learned may be used without a therapist for future difficulties. Therapy is for growth and change. It is a place to learn and understand yourself.
Alternative therapies such as Thought Field Therapy (TFT) and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) are quick and effective to lifting negative symptoms. TFT is an excellent form of treatment if you suffer from phobia, anxiety, OCD, and/or trauma. I use TFT when someone is stuck in their process during therapy.
If you are suffering from bipolar, depression, anxiety, phobias and/or trauma, we will work together to help improve your quality of life. The connection between the client and therapist is vital. If therapy was to be helpful, how would your life or relationship be different?
